What's it like being part of one of the funniest married couples in primetime?
"Damon and I are very close in real life too, and we have so much fun together," said Eliza Coupe ("Scrubs"), who plays Jane to Damon Wayans Jr.'s Brad on ABC's "Happy Endings."
"I feel like he and I, really more than anyone else, are like a little machine. [We go] back and forth [joking], and we're like that off-camera too. Damon and Eliza are just dirty birds - they make Brad and Jane look like Puritans."
In a recent episode, Brad and Jane had a fake fight, and long story short, it involved lots and lots of pigeons.
"I'm not a huge fan of pigeons," Coupe confessed. "I went on a field trip once to New York City, and we went to this cathedral and climbed up this winding, crazy cobblestone staircase. I had a skirt on, and two pigeons got caught in between my legs, and I was scarred for life! They were dirty and gross. So when I had to work with the pigeons, I was not a fan."
What about kids for Brad and Jane?
"I don't know if anyone needs to introduce that. If the show continues on, hopefully, we'll have to do something like that, but I would like to see Brad and Jane get into even more craziness, where maybe they have to rob a bank. I don't know – something like that."
The biggest question of all, of course, is if "Happy Endings," which was something of a surprise renewal for season 2, will get a third season. Coupe said that the cast is taking that in their own hands via social media.
"People need to watch the show!" she said. "We're just trying to get the word out [via Twitter and Facebook]." (Every cast member but Elisha Cuthbert is on Twitter.)
In the meantime, Coupe just hopes that Michael Fassbender will talk to her. She shot a series of videos on YouTube during her downtime on the set of "Happy Endings" (check out the first one below).
"I had a crush on him, and he was one of the many on my list of people, and my friend Bree put up pictures of him all over the place in my trailer. I never expected anybody to actually watch them....We may be onto another man. Fassbender's not being responsive! So the next logical step is either Tom Hardy or Ryan Gosling."
